Quilting My Old Friend

img_3210I started quilting about fifteen years ago. None of my projects are precise enough to belong on a magazine cover. But I just love the process of cutting a simple piece of fabric or old clothing item into pieces, then sewing it all back together to produce a piece of art.

I have had so many people tell me they want to learn how to quilt. I always respond that it is easy to start. Learn to sew a straight line and you have enough skill to start. The biggest piece of advice I would give to a beginner quilter would be to embrace the crooked blocks. Those are the ones that show you were learning and that is a beautiful thing.
